I am so sorry for the passing of such a beautiful soul. Her love, caring, smile and wit will forever ring in my heart. I knew her best when I was the most impressionable — in my teen years — and her Love and courage when Wes died has lived with me as an example to this day. She was such a lovely lady who always gave me a hug and a smile whenever I’ve seen her since. — All my love to the family, especially Matt and Brendon. May she Rest In Peace. ❤️

I just learned of Adria's passing. I had the privilege of training and working with her at Norwich Hospital. Like an angel she came into my life when my father was battling cancer, it was a blessing to have her support. She loved both of her sons and talked fondly of her husband who had passed. Last time I saw her she was meeting a son for lunch. Many laughs were shared. I know she will be missed by many. Thoughts of her will always make me smile.

Worked with Adrien for many years N.H. She was always a delight to be around. She is now with her darling husband whom she never forgot. My sympathy to both her boys whom she loved dearly.

I am so sorry to hear about Adria. We worked together for years at DCF in Norwich. She was the best office assistant we could have asked for. She took care of us and she was family. To her family -my deepest sympathy. Every March when I make her famous delicious Irish Soda Bread I think of her. I was glad I got a chance to talk to her in March. I’ll miss her. Pam Deary-Kelley

Dearest Adria ~
I was privileged to know and work with you, doing our best to help make our performance a positive addition to what we felt was worthy in helping children and troubled families find safety, security and peace. Your caring and heartfelt concern was a gift.

To: Matthew, Brendon and family, I am so sorry for Adria's passing, but knowing she is now at peace is what we need to be thankful for. I have made a request to the Arbor Day Foundation that two (2) trees be planted in her honor to bring life back to a forest in desperate need of replanting.

With fond memories,

Marty and I send our deepest sympathies in your time of loss. Adria was a caring and upbeat woman who loved her family very much and was proud of her boys.
Her trip to Maine with Kim and myself years ago will always be a treasured memory.
Adria, may you keep safe in the loving arms of God.
